The Beauty of Inverter ACs

If you’re online doing a little research about air conditioners, then the chances are that you’re probably in the market for a new unit. Most of the time, homeowners know about central air conditioners and maybe ductless units, but the rest is sort of a mystery. That’s why we want to bring one of our favorite options—the inverter air conditioner—to the limelight today.

We love inverter air conditioners for a bevy of reasons that we’ll get into below. For now, we just want you to know that we’re the professionals that you should rely on when you want great AC work. We specialize in air conditioning in Des Moines, IA. We’ve worked here for a decade now and understand what it takes to keep homeowners like you cool. Call us today.

What’s an Inverter Air Conditioner?

A lot of the time, we get the question “what’s an inverter air conditioner?” or “what’s the difference between a inverter air conditioner and a central air conditioner?” We understand the confusion surrounding these systems because the key difference is buried within the details. We’re here to iron out all the small details today.

An inverter air conditioner is similar to your standard central air conditioner, but the main difference is that an inverter is able to work on a sliding scale. Standard central air conditioners are polar—they either operate at 100% or not at all.

An inverter air conditioner is a little different because it has a variable speed compressor motor that allows you to run your air conditioner at 50% or 75% in theory. This means that you can get just the right amount of cooling in your home rather than blasting in cool air and then rushing to turn off your unit when you’re freezing 15 minutes later. Inverter ACs work to meet your needs.

Our Choice: The Daikin Fit

So what’s the Daikin Fit? Well, as you might have guessed from our details above, it’s an inverter air conditioner. On top of being an inverter air conditioner though, the Daikin Fit is also a side discharge HVAC model. What’s this? It’s literally an air conditioner that expels air out of the side of the model rather than from the top. Side discharge units are great for homes that are working with a limited amount of space like a lot of us can be here in Des Moines, IA. They’re also great if you just have a cumbersome space to work with.

The beauty of the Daikin Fit being both an inverter unit and a side discharge unit is that you’re getting superior comfort, adaptability that goes beyond the standard size and space requirements of a typical HVAC unit, and you’re getting cost savings too. If you’re unsure of what AC unit to go for, we’d always suggest this model. Call us today to learn more about the options you have today.

Come to us when you’re ready to cool your home off with an inverter this season. Modern Heating and Air Conditioning has been serving homeowners in central Iowa since 2010.
